Dan Whaley interviews Brewster Kahle, Digital Librarian, Internet Archive for his documentary Hypothes.is.
Dan Whaley and Rod Mann
In less than 20 years, the Internet and its diffusion into all aspects of our lives through increasingly diverse, powerful and ubiquitous technologies has changed everythingâhow we work, play, communicate, make friends, laugh, learn, find mates, stay informed about the world, make political decisions, fight for our freedoms and much more. It has so transformed us that we can no longer imagine a world without it.
The film aims to capture the phenomenon of the Internet, how it got started, what the original vision was, where we are now, how its changing us, what the opportunities and challenges are, and where we're headed: whatâs possible for humanity given this extraordinary new capability.
We aim to capture this through the stories of those who built what we have, those who are building it now, and those that are most thoughtful and articulate about what it means to us and why it's important, many of whom have not yet given documentary filmmakers the kind of interviews we'll be seeking, often because they simply haven't been asked.
